Save the Rabbits
With One Bun at a Time
Wild rabbits are an important part of the UK's ecosystem, as they help to maintain the balance of vegetation and provide food for predators such as foxes and birds of prey. However, they are also at risk due to factors such as habitat loss, disease, and hunting. It is thought, wild rabbit populations in the UK have declined by over 50% since the 1990s. This decline has a knock-on effect on other species that rely on rabbits as a food source, as well as the health of the ecosystem as a whole.
Domestic rabbits, on the other hand, are often kept as pets but are also at risk due to abandonment, mistreatment, and overbreeding. Rescue organisations work to provide care and shelter for abandoned and mistreated rabbits, as well as promoting responsible pet ownership and the importance of neutering. By supporting charities we can help to ensure that these animals are given the care and protection they need, both in the wild and in domestic settings.

One Bun at a Time is a charity that aims to help ' at risk' rabbits in the UK and either place them in a RWAF verified rescue for rehoming to suitable vetted new owners, or for those with health issues, they will provide a safe, happy, caring sanctuary space for them, making sure they receive all the veterinary care they need for the rest of their lives.
Their work is important as rabbits are often kept as pets and can suffer from poor welfare conditions, including inadequate living space, poor nutrition, and lack of socialisation. Sadly, thousands of rabbits are also abandoned or surrendered to shelters when people realise just how much it costs and the time involved to look after rabbits properly, Rescues are doing their best to cope during this overpopulation crisis, so the education and advice One Bun also give to rabbit owners helps to raise awareness and improve the welfare of rabbits in captivity and, hopefully, decrease the amount of rabbits that end up in rescue centres.
At the moment some of their sanctuary bunnies include Ben, a Paresis disabled bunny who despite this lives a happy life with his blind wife Elise. George was a tiny baby when he arrived with severely deformed Genitals. Minty is also a disabled bunny, he is a Netherland Dwarf. Bronwyn, a beautiful large Californian who came from the T&S Meat and Fur Farm, she had to have a front leg amputated.
They recently took in a tiny baby approx 3 weeks old with a severely broken hind leg. Thankfully she survived surgery to amputate it and is now thriving. And then there is Pippy, an older Nethie boy who has some Orthopaedic issues which means he cannot empty his bladder properly so he needs help with this.
